After growing up in “small town,” USA in the Land of Lincoln (Illinois) I headed off to the US Army where I made it a career. A couple of tours-of-duty and fate (and Uncle Sam) landed me near the Panama Canal in the wonderful Republic of Panama where my life was changed forever! Through the doors of the Latin culture I taught myself Spanish and met my beautiful, passionate wife of now 23 years.
After “transiting” the canal together, fate (and Uncle Sam again) landed us in the great state of Texas where we both have felt right at home ever since – after all, it’s the perfect blend of American Patriots with a Latin touch. After retiring from the Army we began to invest in real estate which led to a passion and a career.
I have always been a “servant of life” and made it a priority in helping others in all aspects of life. I am my brother’s keeper!! My love of real estate and passion for helping others has been a perfect vocation. I hold the values of honesty, compassion, and loyalty near and dear to my heart!!
I am here to assist you in any way possible and particularly love working with my fellow Brother and Sister Veterans; first time home buyers; and investors.
